I’ve been a fan of “film noir” movies (click to read more, if you are not familiar with that movie genre) since I was a kid. Not that I knew what movies in this genre were actually called back then, LOL!
I always loved the mysterious feeling these movies portrayed, the night scenes, the danger, the spine-tingling suspense, the romance, the bad guys, the bad girls…what’s not to ♥, right? 😉
I happened to find this Film Noir Collection: two DVD set over at Amazon recently for less than $10!!!
And that is for all 10 of these film noir classics:
BEAT THE DEVIL
PORT OF NEW YORK
THEY MADE ME A CRIMINAL
As for quality, excellent picture and sound, considering the age of the original films these were reproduced from, all from the 40’s.
Only one thing that might be a negative for some viewers, this is a full-screen version not widescreen. For me though, it was fine, as we have an OLD TV and the full screen versions for movies are actually better.
This would also make a great gift for any “film noir” fans on your list. It comes in a black metal tin, instead of the usual plastic DVD case. Add a red ribbon tied around it and you’d be good to go! 😉
If you are a film noir fan like I am or know someone who is, this is a must have collection!
